A Li'l About Me & A Blog Award

'Sup ladies?!   I can't believe it's Thursday already and I'm so excited that we're this close to the weekend.  YAY!!!  Knowing that it's almost Saturday helps me get through stressful weeks that feel like they're never going to end.

Yesterday, while I was sitting at work, trying to take a 5 minute break from the whirling abyss of Excel spreadsheet hell, I checked my personal email to clean out some junkmail and check to see if I got any new blog comments (of course).  I had a really happy surprise when I received a blog award from a hilarious girl whose blog I absolutely love, Sam from Once is Enough





. : Rules : .

one. include the award's logo in a post or on your blog.

two. share the love and link the person who awarded you.

three. tell us seven facts about yourself.

four. nominate seven other bloggers

five. link your nominees in your post and leave them a comment letting them know they've won!


. : 7 Facts About Moi : .

one.  I have an affinity for even numbers.  The tv volume is usually set to an even number, as is the thermostat in my house.  I always know when my husband changes the thermostat or the tv volume because it will be set to an odd number, so I typically change it back. to something even  The only exception is the house's temperature when I sleep.  It has to be 71 degrees.

two. I'm a very conspicuous eater.  I chew loudly, spill things on myself and drop crumbs all over my shirt.  There's no hidden eating in my world.  When I've had a snack, everyone knows it.

three. I'm a pool person rather than an ocean person.  I don't like swimming where other things live and feeling fish bump up against my legs while I'm swimming freaks me out in the hugest way.  YUCK!  I remember being out in the ocean with my friends and making one of them escort me back to the beach because I was scared of the random things that kept knocking against me.  I still get the heebie jeebies just thinking about it!

four. I attend a fundraiser every year where guys from death metal bands raise money for homeless cats.  It's called the Metal Meowlisha.  I kid you not.  Those guys may have the worst B.O. known to mankind, but they'll give the last of their Jagermeister money to spay and neuter stray cats.  It's a beautiful thing!

five. Diet soda is my lifeblood, especially Diet Coke.  I've cut back on my consumption, but I don't think I could ever give it up completely.  Total. Addict.

six.  I got married 13 months ago, and I still haven't finished my wedding scrapbook or gotten my wedding dress cleaned.  I was right on top of everything else, but with these things, I've been slacking!

seven.  My husband does 90% of our laundry, not because he does it better than I do, but because I'm scared of seeing a palmetto bug in our laundry room.  Embarrassing but true.  Thankfully I've taught him well and he does a great job with it!

I love getting to know other bloggers! The comment about being a conspicuous eater.. that's totally me. But I never know and always deny it! :P

Asha said...

Palmettos are the #1 thing I HATE about FL but I still can't get away with not doing laundry. You are so lucky lol and I feel the same way about the beach. It's great for having a picnic or building a sand castle but I never step foot in the water...and I get made fun of for it every.single.time!
p.s. - Thanks for thinking of me!

Thanks so much for the award, Kari! I haven't gotten my dress cleaned either (or ordered our albums). And Adam does all our laundry too. We don't have it in our apartment building so he lugs it to the building next door.
